April 28, 2023, Kanata, Ontario: Canadian North Air Lines today announced its new summer schedule, adding capacity for the spring and summer season. The airline is focused on delivering the optimal number of flights and seats to meet the demand in all communities it serves.
Canadian North is enhancing service to much of its jet network, while at the same time returning non-stop flying to key markets formerly flown as circuits or “milk-runs” in its turboprop network. While some communities will have fewer flights, they will benefit from direct service instead of sharing the aircraft with 3 or 4 other communities (which has often resulted in shortages of seats and cargo capacity for communities at the end of the circuit or “milk run”).
The new schedule gains efficiencies and adds more than 8% capacity into and across the Canadian North network. It will also enable Canadian North to utilize its flight crews more effectively, which is crucial within the current industry-wide pilot shortage.
